Psychology Education Programs

Training in Psychology

The Psychology department faculty are licensed psychologists providing intensive training experiences in psychological evaluation, treatment, and research with children and adolescents and their families. Students and trainees working in the department with faculty include practicum students, psychology doctoral interns, post-doctoral fellows, and medical residents from the departments of Pediatrics and Family Medicine at UNMC. An integral part of the training includes active participation in the department's applied research program. Master's thesis and doctoral dissertation research may be formulated and conducted at MMI. The interdisciplinary nature of the program includes formal and informal introductions to other disciplines within the Institute and cooperative work with these disciplines in case management of children.

Due to the sensitive nature of mental and behavioral health services as well as legal requirements for confidentiality, job shadowing is not available in Psychology.
